  • "What utter tosh is posted on here by some so-called supporters. Exactly the same derogatory comments made about Gomes as were made when we signed Almunia. This guy is a Brazilian international with many years experience. He has played at the top levels of football world-wide. He has played over 90 games in the Premiership---most of those games performing excellently---but making the odd mistake like all keepers. (I remember Gordon Banks and Shilton making mistakes---!). Spurs paid over 7 million for this player. This guy, at 33 still being at the peak of his career, has signed for Watford! Yes, Watford!
    4 years ago everyone posting on this site would have cut off their wedding tackle for a keeper of this pedigree."

Watford have signed former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes on a one-year contract with the option of a further year.

The 33-year-old Brazilian will leave Spurs when his contract at White Hart Lane expires at the end of June and will subsequently join the Hornets.

On Thursday, Watford missed out on former Yeovil Town goalkeeper Marek Stech, who returned to first club Sparta Prague on a three-year deal.

Gomes moved to England in 2008 from Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven and was a regular between the sticks for Spurs until 2011, making 95 Premier League starts in three seasons.

Eventually ousted by Brad Friedel, Gomes was loaned out to Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the 2012/13 season but played just nine times as injury curtailed his loan spell.

Born in Jao Pinheiro, Gomes began his career with Brazilian side Cruzerio before moving to Europe to join PSV in 2004, where he spent four years and made over 100 appearances.

The 6ft 3in gloveman is a Brazilian international who has been capped 11 times at senior level, going to the both the 2006 and 2010 World Cups with the Selecao.

Twice a Confederations Cup winner with Brazil, at club level Gomes has won the Eredivisie four times and the Brazilian Serie A once.
